I had a great Christmas weekend - I hope you did too. But I'm having a hard time recalling a more bizarre stretch of days starting with Christmas Eve. For example:
A) The U.S. Senate - against the wishes of the American people - votes for the overhaul of the health care system and acts as if they're giving the
American people a tremendous Christmas present.
B) The Pope gets attacked during Christmas Eve mass.
C) Pouring rain on Christmas Day in the Sheboygan area.
D) Attempted terrorist attack fails. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declares that "the system worked." Then, a day later, says, "airline security failed." Oh, let's not forget the would-be attacker had the explosives in his underwear and ended up suffering burns. That's gotta sting!
And not even the sports world was spared:
A) University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer announces he is resigning due to health reasons. Then changes his mind and instead takes a leave of absence.
B) The New Orleans Saints blow a 17-point lead and lose to Tampa Bay, thus losing their second straight game after starting the season with 13 straight wins.
And this might be the topper:
